Not all dreams come true. Even for someone like him who had the intelligence, focus, resolve and dedication to prepare for years. If a guy who survived some of the most brutal physical tests in the history of mankind failed, what chances does a normal person have to achieve anything? I don’t think I have an answer to that question other than, 'you’ll regret not trying far more than never attempting it in the first place'; failing is less of a regret than not trying.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Even with him taking himself out of SEAL training, he is still more accomplished than 99.999999% of us. Much respect for him just making it that far.

Wow, beautiful cars. Love the red corvette.

If anyone felt defensive or argumentative about my last major post, the chance that you're a victim of your own excuses is almost certain. Success doesn't only come to those who have superior genetics and achievements don't just come to those who had a perfect upbringing in an ideal environment. Overcoming adversity, gents....that's what life is all about.
I love you, man. I'm just catching up with this report, but if you're ever down in the Houston TX area, give me a shout. Brews are on me, and there's a guest bed open to you.

AH: Sweet Cheeses! Hell yeah I'd get up at 5 AM to look at classic auto porn! Great pics as usual, altho they make me feel somewhat inadequate about my financial situation....

JayReif--I'll hit you up next time I'm in Houston. Or hit me up when you're in CA. Badjuju--you and the rest of us!

As for the 917--the dude's dad own's 2 originals, he owns a replica, but it has the real engine in it....and holmes showed up on slicks. 600hp and 1200lbs I think he said? Lots of videos of the replica (Bailey Cars) on youtube. Sick stuff. I'll have to fish out the video of his car pulling up.

First track day on the Panigale. First track day on a bike. First track day after my cerebellum was scrambled. No brain issues whatsoever (until today). Was very very happy.
